ROOT BEER LADY - Dorothy Molter

Recommended Posts

A couple years ago I bought this book. Its a great read about a great lady that lived and ran a resort in the BWCA. I got it out again and reread it sence winter has decided to stick around for ever this year. I bet there are people out there that knew this Lady.

Yes she would have been interesting to meet ,she was a friend to the solitude of the outdoors that we will never know.We could try to live her way ,but it would be a hard thing to pull off now,couldnt live where she did anyhow,its not allowed!!!Go figure.

We stopped up north at a little museum last year that was all about this "Root Beer Lady". It was pretty neat.

I too stopped up to visit the Root Beer Lady Museum last summer with my family and we found it to be very interesting. Her life was quite a story.

I met Dorothy when I was a little girl. (I was so young that my assigned "load" on the portages was to carry the boat sponge.) My family camped every summer in the BWCA and I remember drinking the root beer and meeting this wonderful lady. Such memories.... Dorothy lived a remarkable life!
